In WWII, Lieut. Martino and his men are assigned to lead a group of prostitutes through the mountainous ways to serve in brothels for Italian soldiers in Albania.
The film opens with the following statement: In October 28, 1940, to be part of the fulminating German victory in all Europe, Mussolini declared war on Greece, convinced that he would raze it in a few weeks. Thus, a courteous people of an ancient civilization, found itself cornered savagely on the Epirus mountains. The Greek army resisted with heroism, and by the end of the Winter, launched a furious counter-attack that pushed the front line of the war into the territory of Albania. It was a long, tragic, and useless massacre that costed 23 755 dead, 50 870 wounded, 12 268 frozen of which 3 000 had to be amputated. Anyway, it was a winning war. Under the unsustainable pressure of the German detachments, that had to intervene, Greece capitulated on April 22, 1941.
The first stop of the mission is supposed to be in Greece. However, the train station sign-post in Latin script reads "RAVNO", revealing that it was filmed in ex-Yugoslavia (now Bosnia and Herzegovina).
